Diversity at RVU

The Days of Diversity (DOD) Committee is comprised of students from the DO, MSBS, and PA programs. Advised by the Director of Student Life, these students learn how to develop and deliver programming that will empower, inspire, and equip the student body to practice as socially conscious health care providers. Student leaders that are part of the DOD committee are called Days of Diversity Ambassadors and encourage their peers to attend DOD events throughout the year.
